The Riot Before are no more

Bummer news on this November morning:  punk rockers The Riot Before have called it quits.  Check out the band’s full statement right here.

For those too lazy to read the whole thing, consider that while “The Riot Before has been made up of thirteen different musicians over the course of its eight year existence, Cory, Freddy, and Jon were by far the most important,” and with singer and vocalist Jon Greeley the most recent member to part ways with the band, “it would be both insensitive and dishonest to stand alone on something built by a group and obstinately declare it The Riot Before.  So I won’t.”

The Riot Before played over 500 shows from 2003 to 2011, and will be missed.

The Riot Before part ways with drummer and bassist

Richmond punk rockers The Riot Before announced that they are parting ways with drummer Freddy Clarke and bassist Cory Manning. Frontman Brett Adams claims that the split is a friendly one, and posted this statement about the split:

The decisions were made about a month ago, both independently and amicably. There was a no big fight or incident that led to them choosing to leave, rather the culprit was exhaustion. The truth of being in The Riot Before, and I’m sure this is the same for a whole host of other small touring acts out there, is that you can either be in the band or have a life. It’s almost entirely one or the other. The jobs you work when home, the hours you work those jobs, the places you live, the tenuous relationships you hang onto, they all are governed by your involvement in this band. And about a month ago, Freddy and Cory decided it was time to focus on the rest of their lives. It’s a decision that I don’t at all fault them for making.
